One of the many benefits of living is Southern California is that “winter” – which usually consists of having to wear long-sleeves when you go out – only lasts a few weeks. I know many of you are still digging out of snow and hoping to see temps in the 40s, but here in SoCal, we’re enjoy days in the low 70s. Sorry, I won’t rub it in. But needless to say, spring and summer skin is on my mind. I can put away my heavier winter moisturizer and look forward to lighter make-up.

I recently had the chance to try out philosophy’s new hope in a tinted moisturizer ($38). This 4-in-1 multitasking product combines moisturizer, SPF 20, antioxidants and sheer color in one easy-to-use airless pump dispenser. I’ve tried a number of tinted moisturizers in the past but they rarely have provided enough moisture or enough coverage for me. But hope in a tinted moisturizer is different.

Available in eight different shades, hope in a tinted moisturizer goes on smoothly, blends seamlessly and provides excellent coverage – a bit more than many tinted moisturizers though not as much as a liquid foundation. I also love that it saves time by combining four products in one – welcomed news to any mom.

Remember that warmer temps are just around the corner and add philosophy’s hope in a tinted moisturizer to your spring skin list.
